Rey then said that he already talked with Aliyah about this and noted that he taught his daughter care & compassion. He then called her 19 year old daughter naive and this upset her, and he stormed off backstage.
Mysterio then apologized to his daughter backstage and said that he’s trying to protect the family because he knows Seth and doesn’t want him to put ideas in her head. Aalyah said that she’s here only to support Dominik.

Murphy Refuses To Comment On His Situation With Aalyah
After this episode of RAW went off the air, Murphy appeared on RAW Talk and Charly Caruso asked him about Rollins’ actions and what’s going on between him and Aalyah Mysterio.
Below is what Murphy said:
“Listen, no comment. You see, what Seth did, he should not have done, and me and Seth were going to have words about that. You see, I follow everything Seth does, I follow the greater good.
I’m all for the greater good, but what Seth did by taking my phone and showing the world private conversations, we’re going to have words.
But me and Aalyah, no comment. Since when is it a crime to message someone and see if they’re OK? I’m getting shunned, I’m getting crucified, for just checking on someone’s well being. There’s nothing sneaky about it. It’s a private conversation between two people.”
Rollins Refuses To Apologize To Aalyah Mysterio, Murphy Attacks Rollins
Murphy told Rollins on the October 5th edition of RAW that he’s been a loyal disciple for months, and wants Rollins to apologize to Aalyah. Rollins said he did her a favour and didn’t release all the messages from their chat.
Murphy & Rollins then defeated Humberto Carrillo & Dominik Mysterio in a tag team match. Murphy left immediately after the match.
Rollins confronted Murphy backstage after the match and said Murphy needs to apologize to him by 10 PM if he wants to remain a disciple.
Later in the ring at 10 PM, Rollins grabbed Murphy’s beard and forced him to apologize, but Murphy refused and attacked Rollins, thus turning babyface.
Murphy attacked Rollins with a Kendo Stick and told Rollins to apologize to Aalyah.
Rollins begs Murphy to stop and he finally stops. Rollins suddenly attacks Murphy and gains control of the Kendo Stick, and begins brutally attacking Murphy.
This leads to Aalyah coming out and telling Rollins to stop, and then checks on Murphy.
The Mystery family came out and took Aalyah to the back, while Dominik was trying to explain her what Murphy and Rollins did to their father’s eye.
